The eternal student, I am always seeking to acquire new knowledge and skills whether in my professional life or in my various hobbies such as woodworking and making. In my professional life I have studied preparatory units at The University of Sydney, engineering units at Macquarie University and received a Bachelor of Information Technology specialising in software development at The Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology. In my first year of university study with Macquarie University I even had the honour of receiving the GT Micropro Prize in Computing and the Optus Engineering Scholarship.
